    Steven,

    Thanks for the report. Your face vise experience matches my own. I've built several benches with the Lake Erie screw and love the action and holding power of a wood screw, the last build...

    Stew,

    It was a good sale ranging from rust to high end tools, prices seemed within reason and there were a good number of folks there on both sides of the tables. The times I went inside WoodCraft...

    A photo of my set up:

    419706

    I didn’t sell any of the “big” stuff but moved a good number of chisels, stones, marking gauges, and saws.

    It was a beautiful day with temps in the low 80’s...

    Once I finish this last cup of coffee I'll load the truck and head to the tool sale.

    I'm taking a couple of Veritas planes and a PM v11 chisel set that I do not use. Most of the other tools are...

    Jim,

    Thanks, my point exactly. There is nothing inherently superior with square dogs and at least one reason they are inferior. When I see a bench with square dogs my first thought is the "Far...

    William,

    I call bull, I have built and used several benches with square dogs. I have used both and the only advantage to square dogs is the "hoot" factor. The job of end vises is not brute force...

    Brian,

    Jim,

    Same here, I'm happy for you guys having found something that works for you. It is not an easy thing with work benches but a shoulder vise would never work in my shop.

    Mike,

    Busted, but my story is because it is mostly an excuse to use the BC Classic screw and 14" crisscross I've stored and a little "Oh boy a new bench build" :p.
